eBay and French luxury group LVMH (the owners of Louis Vuitton, Céline, Givenchy and Fendi amongst others) have finally settled a longstanding court battle over the sale of fake designer goods on the auction website.

Although they didn't discuss how much the settlement was, we're talking big bucks. A court in France had ordered eBay in 2008 to pay a €38.5 million fine, which was then appealed and reduced to €5.7 million in 2012.

The two giants have now agreed to work together to fight against the sale of counterfeit designer handbags and other goods on eBay.

In a join statement, Michael Jacobson, eBay's Senior Vice-President and General Counsel, and Pierre Godé, Vice-President of LVMH, issued a joint statement saying: "Thanks to our joint efforts, consumers will enjoy a safer digital environment globally".
